What is Vanadium Deficiency (Insufficiency)?
Vanadium is a trace element, important for the functioning of the cardiovascular nervous and muscle systems, is involved in the formation of bone tissue and the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism
Pathogenesis during Vanadium Deficiency (Insufficiency)
Vanadium is found everywhere in the body, most of it is found in bone tissue, is also present in the heart muscle, muscle tissue, spleen, thyroid gland, lungs and kidneys. Excreted in the urine.
Reduce the effects of vanadium chromium and some proteins.
Despite the fact that the average person’s body contains only 0.10 mg of vanadium, it is nevertheless very important for the passage of many processes in the body, performs a number of functions:
- regulates the work of the cardiovascular system (reduces the risks of cardiovascular disease and hypertension)
- prevents the development of atherosclerosis (reduces the production of cholesterol in the liver cells)
- participates in the formation of bone tissue (contributes to the accumulation of calcium salts in bones, participates in the formation of teeth and increases their resistance to caries)
- participates in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism (vanadium imitates many effects of insulin)
- participates in the cellular mechanism of regulation of the “sodium pump” (reduces swelling and removes tumors)
- regulates muscle and nerve tissue
- is a catalyst for many redox processes
- has an effect on some functions of the eyes, liver, kidneys
- regulates blood glucose and hemoglobin levels
- reduces the level of coenzymes A and Q
